This was our first time in New York, but not our first to famous museums. Mark V. was our guide and he was extraordinary! We met in the front of AMNH and he explained architectural history along with the lead in to the AMNH. Throughout the tour he was very knowledgeable and excited about history. He was well read and informed of the projects going on in the museum along with their restoration processes. He was a phenomenal tour guide and we look forward to being able to tour with him again.

Mark was the best tour guide ever and we have always enjoyed the best with Viator. He was outstanding and, of course, the museum experience is not to be missed. He had out grandchild fully engaged and WE learned so much as well. And we had been many times before.

This is a must do in NYC. A small guided tour with our amazing and informative guide Katherine covered all the main exhibit highlights and then left us with plenty of time to peruse the rest of the museum at our leisure. BTW she takes a good photo also. There is just so much to see and do here so best leave the greater part of a day to do so

The museum is HUGE and with my family we wanted to see the most on this tour without wasting time. Jared, our guide, had wonderful historical facts about the museum and the displays. It was great not to have to stare at a map half the time and just follow his lead. We told him what we wanted to see and we were able to see it all and more!

Without the guide we would have been lost and not known what to do first. Definitely worth the money for first timers. Jessie our guide was great.

While the tour guide was great I could barely hear him most of the time due to the noise level in the museum. Therefore I do not think a private tour is worth the exhorbatant amount of money charged. I feel that I could have gained more from going through on my own.
